DRUGS/MELANIA: “In a theater where Barry Manilow revs up shrieking Fanilows and Wayne Newton crooned ‘Danke Schoen,’ first lady Melania Trump took the stage at Westgate Las Vegas Tuesday [3-5-19] to talk opioids at a town hall and to answer questions via social media. On the second day of her two-day trip to the West to promote her FLOTUS causes, Trump spoke to a half-filled theater crowd that included Newton himself and an Elvis impersonator at a town hall moderated by former Fox News host Eric Bolling in the International Theater. Wearing a belted navy-blue dress with a pussy bow, Trump repeated a claim that she made at a similar opioid town hall last year in Virginia: That the Trump administration considers the opioid epidemic ‘the worst drug crisis in American history.’ And she insisted the media should do better in covering it.”
